Hope, Sadness, Prayers

As Ron and I drink our morning coffee, we watch a juvenile eagle soar above the trees outside our window,  yesterday two of them were racing each other and riding the air currents up and down, a beautiful sight, their mature relatives are nesting down the road at this time, waiting for life to go on.

Sunshine is breaking through the eastern horizon, shooting soft colors of pink and purple over the Canadian Islands we look out on, lifting our mood a little after six days of grey, is that grey a reflection of humanities spirit as the world watches this drama unfold in Japan?  Yes, life is continuing, but we realize it will never be the same.

Friends in Tokyo are safe, but for how long?  Fellow humans are suffering and all we can do is pray, send relief money, help our countries send supplies and personnel.  Colleagues Ron and I worked with before retirement are on their way to Japan as part of the IAEA teams, can they help stop this nuclear tsunami that seems to be rushing toward Japan, toward a world that has been turned upside down?

Japan, Tonga, Libya, and many other parts of this world are under extreme duress at this time, Our prayers are for protection for all of these places, peace for all of these places, and for this world as life goes on.

Prayers from Nancy at the Boat House in Birch Bay
